Devil's Bridge bridges the gap between suspense and women's fiction 29 avril 2007
Par Rick R. Reed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I had read--and been delighted with--Lilly's first effort, FINGERING THE FAMILY JEWELS, a deceptively cozy mystery that had a biting southern gothic undercurrent. I was surprised--and likewise delighted--with DEVIL'S BRIDGE, which, on the surface, seems like a solidly constructed Lifetime TV movie: a woman on the run from an abusive husband, and the friend who helps her...with secrets and man problems of his own. Lilly imbues his characters with such detail and humanity that one can't help but be pulled into the story. You really care about Topher and Myra and feel as though you're with them as they flee Myra's abusive husband and Topher's bad relationship choices. Lilly keeps the suspense factor high...and this is one book that's hard not to read from start to finish in one sitting. Highly recommended.

Escaping from dysfunctional relationships to be happy ... 17 juillet 2007
Par Bob Lind - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Topher is a gay man in his late 20's who is in a rather one-sided relationship with a self-involved handsome attorney. His best friend from college, Myra, is in an abusive marriage with Gil, a man she is growing increasingly afraid of. When Myra discussed her husband, Topher was quick to suggest that she leave him, while Myra gave Topher the same advice about his insensitive boyfriend. Neither one wanted to risk losing what they had (or liked to think they had) in order to find true happiness with someone else, which is a problem with many couples, gay or straight. Finally, after a particularly bad fight with Gil, Myra realizes that it is no longer just her self-esteem that is in danger, but her safety and possibly her life, and she decides to leave town and not let him know where she was going. Simultaneously, Topher comes to a similar realization that he wants to "start over" somewhere different, without having to deal with remnants of his last relationship, and also plans to leave town, so they decide to take off together. They leave North Carolina and head west, unsure where they will eventually end up, staying with mutual friends along the way. By the time they get to Sedona, Arizona, they think they just may have found a new place where they will both be happy, but Gil manages to find them, leading to a dramatic climax to the story.

Author Lilly gets extra points from me for spinning a classic "do what you need to do in order to be happy" story with likeable gay and straight characters. In my opinion, the story becomes a bit simplistic and easy to predict, once they are on the road, and that could have been done better. But it does make for an engaging and pleasant read. Four stars out of five.

A Page-Turner 30 août 2008
Par Mike K - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Devil's Bridge is an intricately woven tale of suspense that will keep the reader wanting to read more. It is a story of two thirty-something people who have been friends since high school. Myra and Topher became friends in high school - she being the slightly unattractive girl, and he being the ostracized gay boy. Their friendship grew deeper and finally into a deeply platonic love which saved them from themselves and the bad choices they made in their romantic partners.

In the span of a few months, they both come to the conclusion that they need a new start. Topher is running from an indifferent lover who wouldn't reciprocate Topher's love, and Myra is fleeing from her abusive, and possibly murderous, husband Gil. They decide to run away and start a new life together, but Myra's husband is not willing to let her go so easily. Vengeance is found at a place called Devil's Bridge.

This is truly a wonderful book. It is a page-turner that builds to a suspenseful climax, with the reader encouraging and cheering on the battered woman and her best friend (who would do anything to keep her safe.) The plot is tight, the characters believable, and the dialogue is modern. I honestly couldn't put this book down, and therefore I give it my highest recommendation. You won't be disappointed with Devil's Bridge.

A fascinating story about true friends who become family 27 juillet 2009
Par Keith Pyeatt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If a gay man, a lesbian, and a battered woman can't make a good suspense story, who can? Okay, that was a clumsy modification of a clever battle cry in the novel Devil's Bridge, but it works for this review. The other reviews include nice summaries. Instead of adding another, I'll mention how much I enjoyed the way author Greg Lilly created his characters. The main ones, Topher and Myra, the gay man and battered woman, are well developed in their initial situations in Charlotte. Then they radically alter their situations by fleeing North Carolina to start new lives. I particularly enjoy the way the dynamics between Topher and Myra change as they make their way to Georgia, Texas, New Mexico, and finally Arizona.

Devil's Bridge is definitely about the characters, but there's plenty of suspense dropped in at just the right moments to keep things moving. I enjoyed reading this novel and highly recommend it to readers who value friendships.

Another good one from Lilly! 12 novembre 2009
Par J. Ryniec - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I read my first book by Greg Lilly, Fingering The Family Jewels, a couple of months ago and thoroughly enjoyed that one. So I decided to try another. Devil's Bridge was even better than Fingering The Family Jewels in my opinion. Lots of suspense to keep the reader gripped by the story and the pacing was just perfect. I ended up racing through it just to reach the conclusion even though I didn't really want it to end. I look forward to reading more books by Greg Lilly in the future. Buy this book. It's definately money well spent!
